TVOKids' Don't Sit Still Tour invites families to get active this Father's Day at Ontario Place!

  • Free live stage shows June 19 motivate kids to get moving, eat right and have fun.

TORONTO, June 6, 2011 /CNW/ - This Father's Day, TVOKids invites young families to get active together at Ontario Place with the TVOKids Don't Sit Still Tour. On Sunday June 19, families can enjoy free grounds admission to Ontario Place and two free performances by TVOKids hosts that will have kids and parents on their feet! (Show venue and times are listed below.)

Presented by EatRight Ontario, with sponsorship in part by Sun-Rype, the TVOKids Don't Sit Still Tour will visit over 20 Ontario communities this year and features TVOKids hosts Drew and Kara in a free live stage show that motivates kids to get active, eat right and have fun.

Young audiences and their families can enjoy new songs, new dance moves, and non-stop opportunities to join in and follow along. As a memento of the show and its message of healthy living, kids receive free "Don't Sit Still" gift bags. The new DSS Cruiser will also visit Ontario Place on the day of the show, with ambassadors giving out free snack samples from Sun-Rype and tips on healthy eating.

"The Don't Sit Still shows are a fun way to share important healthy living messages with young children and their parents. The shows take place in communities throughout the province.  Encouraging children to be active every day, and to eat more fruits and vegetables leads to the development of good habits for better health and well-being," says Margarett Best, Ontario's Minister of Health Promotion and Sport.

"What's really cool about the Don't Sit Still Tour is that we get to meet TVOKids fans, see how TVO affects the community and see all the kids and parents dancing, singing and getting active," says TVOKids host Kara.
